Atlanta's singer-songwriter Faye Webster
was only 16 when she recorded the folk-ish album
Run and Tell (2013).
If Faye Webster (2017) was largely a dull experience of mellow country ballads,
the somnolent country-soul lullabies of
Atlanta Millionaires Club (Secretly Canadian, 2019), like
Room Temperature and Hurts Me Too, forged a new genre of the
kind of intimate pop inaugurated by Sade in the
1980s. The jazzy elements in Come To Atlanta and Kingston
further expanded her palette.
I Know I'm Funny Haha (2021) was marked by the languid sound of the steel guitar in such a way that it was impossible not to recall
soft rock and country-pop of the 1970s, often wrapped in a
somnolent lounge atmosphere.
Amid memories of Carole King (Better Distractions)
Burt Bacharach (Kind Of) her tiptoeing ballads with no major refrain/chorus/hook evoke a monotonous existential drift.
The ultimate specimen of her
dreamy whispered slocore are
Sometimes and Overslept that sound so fragile they could break into pieces any time.
The bluesy In a Good Way and
the slightly more vibrant dream-pop of Cheers with a thumping quasi-disco beat don't seem to belong to this album but maybe points to a more sellable future.
